Nest w/6 eggs but mama may be dead

We have several bluebird houses. We checked them this past weekend and found a nest with 6 eggs in them, beautiful! We've seen mama going in/out of house all weekend. Today my husband noticed the door was open & went to check it. Nest and eggs intact but dead female near the tree. Assuming this would be mama, but we have several females/males in the yard this spring. Do we watch to see if one sits on the eggs and if not pull nest and eggs out to pitch? That makes me very sad! Yes we have sparrows in the yard GRRRRR.
